*5K Course Description
The course is mostly shaded. The terrain is comprised of grass, dirt, and hard packed gravel roads. The first 300m is flat (on grass), followed by 1/2 mile of down hill (200m of dirt road and 600m of grass), followed by 900m of flat (on grass). Runners will then be greeted by a 400m hill (hard-packed gravel). That terrain will continue off of the hill and gradually undulate into the 2 mile mark. About 100m after the 2 mile mark, the runners turn onto a 100m decline of dirt trail followed by undulating terrain (dirt). With 800m left to go, runners are greeted by a 300m hill. The last 380m is on hard packed gravel road.
